Abstract

This article examines how one hospital developed an approach to creating a safer and more secure environment for staff and patients. A cross-functional task group promoted a review of existing practices and processes related to the issue of violence in the workplace. The task group made recommendations for improving prevention, response, and the reporting of violent incidents. Results to date indicate that this approach is working to meet the goal of a safer and more secure environment.
